In response to a growing population of low-income families in northern Ramsey County suburban communities, Keystone Community Services has moved its Roseville food shelf to a larger and more accessible location.The Roseville Food Shelf, now located at 2833 North Hamline Avenue in the Hamline Shopping Center, offers expanded service hours for families in Roseville, Falcon Heights, Lauderdale and Little Canada.Previously located in the Fairview Community Center, the new Roseville site is one of three Keystone locations, including the Rice Street Food Shelf, 1457 Rice Street, and the Midway Food Shelf, 1916 University Avenue West. “At our new Roseville location, we have more than doubled our hours to serve north suburban Ramsey County families,” said Christine Pulver, director of Keystone’s Basic Needs Program. “We appreciate the support that many area churches and organizations have provided and look forward to working with many more to assure that every family in need can be assisted.”An Open House at the new food shelf will be held on Thursday, March 3, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. (a brief program will be held at 5:30 p.m.) The event is open to the public and all are welcome to stop by.
